Similar to 2016/Leaders, the Leaders Summit sessions are open to everyone who has co-organized an IndieWebCamp from 2015-2017 or at least two Homebrew Website Club meetups during those years, and posted at least one meetup photo. If you're not sure, ask an organizer.
🤓 Have you helped organize an IndieWebCamp or series of Homebrew Website Clubs and want to help out with our annual IndieWebSummit? Add yourself below, and what you'd like to / are available help do to make the summit happen:
- Aaron Parecki - onsite in Portland
- Tantek Çelik - all kinds of wiki things (like this page and subpages), outreach, possibly cross-promotion with related events
🤗 Participated in an IndieWebCamp and want to help out new folks? Or just passionate to help out any way you can? Add yourself here!
- Martijn van der Ven - talk to Zegnat on IRC to have stuff get done.
Sorry to miss you!
- funwhilelost 13:28, 18 April 2017 (PDT)
- food - vegetarian default
- onsite childcare (was asked about the week before 2016, so we should look into options, costs, possible sponsorship thereof etc.) note: we did not put this together in time for 2017 so will have to try again for next year

Post-summit notes to keep in mind for future events.
- This year we had 50 registrations, and ordered food for 40.
- 31 people attended on day 1, and 21 attended on day 2.
- Hot breakfast on day 1 was great, and many people ate the leftovers for lunch that day. We still had too much left over though.
- We consistently have people drop out the second day, so we can likely order less food for the second day than the first.
- We had way too many bagels for day 2 breakfast. We can probably order 1 bagel for every 2 people.
- The afternoon coffee refresh was a good idea, but it should have come around 2pm instead of 3pm. Also we didn't need as much as was ordered. The 4 coffees in the morning was a good amount, and probably needed only 2 more in the afternoon.
- An external sign out on the street would have made it easier to find.
- Several remote attendees filled out the ti.to registration, so we should make sure it's clear that the ti.to registration is just for in-person attendance.
- Some people registered on ti.to twice, a month apart. Not sure what the problem there was or how to fix it.
- We lost the beginning of the demos because Wirecast on the computer that was recording/streaming to youtube crashed. In the future, we should record the Vidyo stream in the main room as well as a backup.
- We forgot to take a group photo on day 2.
- Designate a camera-free area for people to use to type in passwords when they want to make sure they aren't being livestreamed and filmed at multiple angles
